This is actually a new release from Lupicia. They really love their peach teas! Even though they already offer a peach and vanilla green tea (Momoko), I guess they felt that white peach is different enough to warrant its own tea. This does seem to be a higher grade sencha than they generally use for their flavored greens, with a darker color and more slender, aromatic leaves. The white peach aroma is fantastic.
I steeped this for 2 minutes instead of my usual 3, and I think next time I’ll reduce the time even more as it came out just a little bit bitter. But wow, this tea is a stunner! The peach flavor is so crazy sweet and lush and juicy. It’s almost slightly mango-like as well, and creamy enough that it tastes a bit like a peach smoothie. The base tea is vegetal, and a touch bitter due to my foolish mistreatment. There’s a nice touch of floral at the end as well.
Luscious! Another outstanding fruity tea from Lupicia. I hope they plan to keep this one around!
